Widener Collection 1942. David Anderson was an official in Britain's newly-foundered East India Company and had an adventurous nature. Raeburn was Scotland's first great painter; he trained in Edinburgh and Rome and introduced the English-type of fashionable portraiture to his native country. He was, however, more objective and less flattering to his sitters than most of his English contemporaries.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
